Crafty time – Pumpkin greeting cards

The little tyke and myself have really got into the Halloween spirit today by making some lovely Halloween greetings cards. For this project you will need –

  • 1 apple
  • paintbrush
  • orange paint
  • green paint
  • white card
  • crayons
  • glitter pens or markers
apple
Cut your apple in half

Mummy cut the apple in half for the little tyke and let it dry a little, so the paint will sit better on the surface.

Put some orange paint in your paint tray

We used Crayola Washable Kids Paint for this project as it is a child friendly option. When the apple had dried, we applied the orange paint to one side of the apple.

Now it was over to the little tyke to start pressing the apple on to the paper. We had to have a few attempts before we got some good results, but the little chap had lots of fun in the process.

Apple printing was lots of fun!

After the paint had dried I used crayons and glitter pens to add the final details and we had our finished card!

This was a really quick afternoon craft project and quite fun to do. I suppose there are lots of other details that you could add to the card such as stick on eyes, or maybe use different colour card to make the pumpkin really stand out. Why not give it a try?
